    Networking games --> LAN
    anyone know if playing a mac version of a game, on a network with a bunch of pc's, will they be able to see each other?

    say i have a PC server hosting a soldier of fortune 2 LAN game....and i have like 15 PC's playing on the server, will i be able to join their game with my mac? while playing the mac version of soldiers of fortune 2?

    ***edit***
    any other good LAN games that can be played on mac? im going to be hosting a LAN party, and i want to show off by owning everyone on a mac while they blab about how great their pc is... buahahaha

    alot of games have PC-Mac lan compatability, though a few don't.

    Blizzard games are great, 'cause they have both the windows and the mac version on they're disks. Yeah, diablo, warcraft, starcraft all sync perfectly.
